In today’s economy, many people are having trouble affording a new car, so what happened to the unsold cars? Instead of being sold at a discount, they’re being abandoned in vacant lots and left to die, apparently. Take a look. I guarantee it’s more cars than you think it is.

Apparently, the manufacturers can’t stop making new cars because they would have to close factories and lay off tens of thousands of employees, which would be hard to open up a new one and rehire new employees if demand picked up.
But I think the real reason is that car manufacturers don’t want to sell these cars for cheap is because these ‘cheap cars’ would cannabalize new car sales with higher margins.
